Single-car crash leaves 1 facing drunk driving charges

In the moment it takes to read a text or reach for something in the passenger seat, a motor vehicle can drift off course and travel hundreds of feet in the wrong direction. Once a vehicle veers off the road, panic may set in and leave a driver incapable of making the necessary maneuvers to minimize the fallout. A recent single-vehicle accident in California that left a 36-year-old woman with major injuries has also left her accused of drunk driving.

The accident reportedly took place just after 9 a.m. on a recent Sunday. Initial investigations indicate the woman lost control of her vehicle and veered across the median and off the side of the road. Upon exiting the road, her vehicle reportedly struck a nearby embankment and launched into the air before striking a tree.

Upon arriving at the scene, emergency responders worked to free her from the vehicle and assert that she was unresponsive. She was taken to a hospital for treatment of serious injuries shortly thereafter. Although many of the details surrounding the investigation into the crash remain unclear, she was subsequently taken into custody on suspicion of driving while impaired.

Being accused of drunk driving can be a stressful and daunting process. Those who face similar charges may find it beneficial to seek legal counsel early on for guidance in making informed decisions about their case. An attorney in California can examine the circumstances a client is facing and assist him or her in pursuing the best outcome possible during subsequent court proceedings.
